I keep 5D for short stuff. The 1D for extremely fast stuff and long lenses, and my friends 30/40D for a smaller telephoto.

Looking to buy 3rd body. Maybe the 40D or another 1DMarkII or so

Good, confirmation that I actually know what I'm talking about.
Yeah I am looking for a zoom lens for my dad but have no idea on what to look for. I am generally looking for something around the £100 budget but I doubt I will get anything around that =(

I'm sure Dr4gon or some other Sony shooter can help you, but I know of a few that are inexpensive but decent:

Sony SAL-55200 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DT Autofocus Lens

Sony 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SAL-75300

save up and get what you really want. We all been there at one point, got something to get us by and didn't work. Save the money and before you know you'll get the lens you want.

Good advice, that's how I've proceeded. I was thankfully warned early on not to buy cheap "vacation lenses" (not that there aren't good ones), so I've scrimped for the lenses I currently have. One day, I'll have the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM L, one day...

Evilsponge, check out this concise list of common Sony lenses:

And at the same site, be sure to peruse the third-party companies like Tamron and Sigma.

thanks, I think I might look into getting a used 55-200mm. I read somewhere that I will really get 82-300 out of it using my A200 body, is this right?

It's a 1.5x field of view crop, so you're really still seeing 55-200mm, but it's a good rule of thumb to think in those terms.

I like the effect, very clear water, maybe a shallower angle without the grass obstructing?

Thanks for posting, but please resize your images to something smaller, it's a real pain to look at images bigger than my entire monitor's max res. 1024 x 1024 (or thereabouts) is the max for this thread.
